Adam Savage (co-host of Mythbuster & big fan of Blade Runner) got some help from Kayte Sabicer and built a 1/2 scale model of the Blade Runner blimp complete with lights and what seems to be everything else (Yes, they do mention the “Ridley is god” thing)
I bet most of us lost out breath when she walked up those stairs to meet Deckard. Personally all I was looking for was “digital errors & mishaps” but I couldn’t find one when I saw that it really was Rachael whom had returned (even thou it wasn’t really her)
This is pure movie magic, at it’s finest form if you’d ask me and this is how it was made. You can find more information at Moving Picture Company whom created the Rachael digitally or at FXGuide.com
There is an amazing rendition of some of the music that we get to enjoy in Blade Runner by the Danish Symphony Orchestra (and David Bateson), It seems to have been televised in June 2017 when the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) hosted three orchestral concerts called “Galaxymphony” which included some of the soundtrack from various space and sci-fi movies.
This is their version of some of the Blade Runner soundtrack called ‘The Blade Runner suite’.
Adam Savage (Mythbusters) had the privilege of getting an invite to see a screening of Blade Runner 2049. He is a huge fan of Blade Runner and has the same feelings towards Blade Runner as the most avid Blade Runner fan out there and had the same fears of getting another Blade Runner movie as I have. The fears are now gone and I don’t think he could have been more positive to Blade Runner 2049 than what he is in this “Still untitled” cast. The best thing is that this is an absolutely free from spoilers so you can watch this without getting to know something you don’t want to know
So, I guess I too will have to go see Blade Runner 2049. God Help Adam Savage if I leave the Cinema disappointed 😉
Blade Runner 2039 is a small peek on what happens between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049
Niander Wallace (Jared Leto) is seeking to get the prohibition on manufacturing Replicants lifted and he brings with him the perfect Replicant from the Nexus 9 series
This is might be the alternative to those of us that are a bit sceptic towards Los Angeles 2049. A film that’s in the making which you can support thru their Kickstarter campaign. If you visit their homepage you’ll get to see things that is amazing and will make you get a very Blade Runner’ish feeling, they are not using any CGI and the film are being made by using miniatures, optical effects and practical effects, basically doing things the same way Blade Runner was made.
… The best thing is that the story is set in the Blade Runner universe
It is just another damp, rainy, and foggy night on the streets of the futuristic Los Angeles. Beneath the flashy neon signs and heavy traffic, scum of this megalopolis tries to make a living and hopefully survive to see another day. Criminals, junkies, prostitutes, punks… and one lonesome drug dealer in the middle of it all, fed up with this ever expanding city and lowlife parasites that inhabit it. He may be well on his way to leave it all behind, but fate has made other plans and his whole world will come crumbling down when a dirty cop with an agenda of his own enters his life.
The official trailer for Blade Runner 2049 was released today. Feel free to press play, watch the trailer.
Dave Bautista said in this interview that he thinks that Blade Runner 2049 will be better than Blade Runner and “answer some questions”.
Well, if you’d ask me the questions are what made Blade Runner such a masterpiece, the questions are what the audience should try to answer themselves. So, another question is if we want answers? My answer to that is no. I’d like to keep the questions and keep them unanswered.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
One trailer for Blade runner, 2049 has been released today. Ryan Gossling and Harrison Ford (with the “Blaster”) can be seen in environments that look both very “Blade Runnerish” and a bit clean & scaled down. Enjoy 🙂
